Come and join us in a new community of practice!
All are welcome: teachers, administrators, teaching artists, arts organizations, and arts allies serving the young people in Santa Clara County. Through the Artspiration Community of Practice, we will engage with each other around specific topics impacting our lives to improve teaching and learning in a virtual world.
Topics include ways to include new CA Arts Standards and Framework; social emotional learning and the arts; unpacking racism through the arts; arts and the Black Lives Movement; and, indigenous ways of knowledge and learning. We see the arts as a tool for healing, connecting to self and community, increasing student engagement, and nurturing creativity. The Arts are essential!
